By ΣΤΑΥΡΟΣ ΦΩΤΟΠΟΥΛΟΣ

Abstract

OUR STUDY CONSISTED OF 42 WOMEN WHO RECEIVED GONADOTROPINS AND GNRH-A FOR INDUCTION OF OVULATION FOR IVF. THE CONTROL GROUP INCLUDED 23 NORMAL CYCLING WOMEN.AFTER EVALUATING OUR RESULTS THE FOLLOWING CONCLUSIONS CAN BE DRAWN: 1) SERUMESTRADIOL AND PROGESERONE SHOWED A STATISTICALLY HIGHLY SIGNIFICANT DIFFERENCE BETWEEN THE STIMULATED AND UNSTIMULATED CYCLES, BEING HIGHLY ELEVATED IN THE GROUP OF STIMULATED BECAUSE OF MULTIPLE FOLICULOGENESIS (P < =5,8X10-11, P < = 2,2X10-8). 2) CORTISOL LEVELS IN SERUM AND FOLLICULAR FLUID SHOWED NO STATISTICALLY SIGNIFICANT DIFFERENCE BETWEEN THE TWO GROUPS OF PATIENTS. 3) THE PERCENTAGE OF FERTILIZED OOCYTES SHOWED NO STATISTICALLY SIGNIFICANT DIFFERENCE BETWEEN THE TWO GROUPS, BUT THE PERCENTAGE OF PREGNANCIES WAS 0% FOR THE NORMAL CYCLES, WHILE IT WAS QUITE HIGH 28,5% FOR THE INDUCED CYCLES.
